Dead Souls by J. Lincoln Fenn is an almost light-hearted look at a deadly serious subject: the existence or non-existence of the soul. Fiona is a non-believer in just about everything. That includes the idea that she has a soul. So if someone wants to buy it, why not? In exchange for the thing she wants most in the world she must pay with a FAVOR. The favor is unspecified. When she will have to perform the favor is unspecified. No matter what the favor is, she must fulfill the requirements and do what is asked. Only then will she be permitted to die. True, going to hell is a negative but in return, she will get exactly what she asked for, no more, no less.
